The Raritan PX-5000 family of high-quality rack power distribution units (PDUs) offers real-time remote unit-level and individual outlet-level switching and power monitoring of current (amps), voltage, power (kVA, kW), power factor and energy consumption (kWh) with ISO/IEC +/- 1% billing-grade accuracy. The PX-5000 also supports Raritan's Plug-and-Play environmental sensors. Users can define thresholds and receive alerts when thresholds are crossed for both power and environmental events.
Remote power monitoring, metering and rich data collection
Make informed capacity planning decisions and efficiently utilize power resources such as finding stranded power in racks. Measure IT equipment power consumption to save power and money, calculate green grid's PUE level 2 and level 3, and drive green data center initiatives.
LED and alarms for unbalanced loads based on user-adjustable thresholds
Increase efficiency, utilization and capacity. Load balance lines and circuits to avoid overloading neutral lines. Improve uptime and staff productivity.
Capable of ISO/IEC +/- 1% billing-grade accuracy real-time power monitoring and metering, down to individual outlets for some models
Report and/or bill back power consumption (kWh). Trend and track energy utilization or bill power costs to users.
User-adjustable power data sampling and buffering
End users can choose the frequency at which they monitor power and the amount of data they gather.
Alerts via SNMP, e-mail and system log from individual outlets, units, lines and circuit breakers when user-adjustable thresholds are exceeded
Receive advanced warning of potential problems with critical and non-critical thresholds and alerts.
Ethernet, serial, USB-A, USB-B and sensor connections
Supports modem control functions for serial console access. Connectivity options for third-party peripherals enabling applications, such as wireless, USB drives, and more.
Remote access via web and CLI, supports HTTP, HTTPS, SSH and Telnet
Check status of PDUs, lines, circuit breakers and individual outlets. For switched models, remotely provision, reboot and switch individual outlets and groups of outlets with user-configurable, outlet-level delays for power sequencing.
Alerts based on user-defined environmental thresholds
Save costs by leveraging PX to monitor the data center environment and receive alerts when thresholds are reached.
LED indication if sensor is plugged in and detected
Provides confidence that environmental sensors are functioning and properly monitoring the data center environment.
UL489 circuit breakers
Meets underwriters laboratories' branch circuit protection standards. Unlike fuses, an electrician or an inventory of spare fuses are not required. Eliminates the possibility of installing a fuse with the wrong rating.
Smart reversible LED display that changes orientationProduct Highlights
Easily check power readings, such as line draw and balance for three-phase rack PDUs at the rack before adding devices.
- Standards based polling, configuration and alerting with encryption via SNMP v1, v2, v3 support, SETs, GETs and TRAPs
- Compatible with Raritan's Power IQ
- Lightweight and strong extruded aluminum chassis with excellent heat dissipation and versatile button and bracket mounts
